Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is Dave Mbeki,i am a General Manager in the Finance Dept. in Wes Bank,South Africa.This department is also responsible for all our costumers account details and documents.
This may come to you as a surprise, Please know that I am writing you with utmost confidentiality and I hope you treat this email as such.
On October 15, 2001, our customer Mr. John Ernst (Jack) Eichler, 69 Cedar Grove New Jersey, USA. He is also a business man,who made a numbered fixed deposit for 12 calendar months, with a value of Four Million Five Hundred thousand pounds in Wes Bank in south africa.
Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even after the contracts he made with South African Government.
Another notification was sent and still now no response came
from him.We later find out that Mr. John Ernst (Jack) Eichler died in the September 11 terrorist attack in New York,USA.
After further investigation it was also discovered that Mr. John Ernst (Jack) Eichler did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit. And he also confided in me the last time he was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in this Bank.According to the South African Law, under foreign and defense affairs, at the expiration of 7(seven) years, such funds will revert to the ownership of the South African Government account for financing military operations, such as purchasing of arms and ammunitions for the military.
In order to avert this development, I will like to seek for your permission as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Mr. John Ernst (Jack) Eichler so that the fruits of this old manâs labor will not be use for financing weapons which will further enhance the courses of war in the world in general.The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 30% for you and 10% for Expenses Incurred in the course of the transaction.
If you are interested, please reply immediately.
On acceptance to assist me, you will have to contact the lawyer handling this transaction,as an image maker in your capacity as the Beneficiary.
I will give you further details on the take over proceedure.
There is no risk involved whatsoever as everything has been perfected to ensure a hitch free transaction.
I shall need to have your word and trust to protect both parties in this transaction.
Awaiting your urgent reply.

Thanks a million,

Dave Mbeki

we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell.

Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
